Fluor Corp. is to perform the FEED contract for a new LNG regasification terminal, which will be located in the town of Lahad Datu, Sabah, and will be built by Petronas Gas Berhad. The regasification plant will feed an adjacent 300 MW combined cycle power plant.
“This LNG terminal will help address additional power generation needs, which in turn, will contribute to further industrial and economic development in the region,” said Ken Choudhary, senior vice president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business.
Fluor will be utilising local subcontractors and suppliers for various facets of the project.
This contract further consolidates Fluor’s position in Malaysia where the company is performing other projects in the oil refining sector and in the LNG regasification business and where significant project growth opportunities are expected in the near term.
Fluor was previously part of a joint venture that provided PETRONAS with preliminary engineering services for a new LNG liquefaction plant at the existing facility in Bintulu, Malaysia.
